Love’s got a hold on you

If you thought your life was special
And now you don’t know what to do
Well there ain’t no way around it
Love’s got a hold on you

If all your prized processions
Suddenly just won’t do
There’s a simple explanation
Love’s got a hold on you

When the wine’s fine and expensive
But it just can’t quench your thirst
The implications are extensive
When you realize there’s something worse

When a song you know is schmaltzy
Can suddenly make you so blue
Any licensed shrink can tell you,
Love’s got a hold on you

If your Harvard education
Finds a door you can’t just walk through
Congratulations, you’re a winner
Love’s got a hold on you

When you order your eggs scrambled
But they come hardboiled to you
And you don't even notice
Love’s got a hold on you

If you spend the whole day dreaming
Yet at night you just can’t sleep
Chances are your heart’s been scheming
And this time it’s playing for keeps

When you find yourself believing
In a world you thought was through
I hate to be the one to tell you
But love’s got a hold on you

Love’s got a hold on you

Might as well stick a fork in it Mister
